While fans of the television drama Nashville are rejoicing that the show was picked up by CMT after a shocking cancellation by ABC, they may be devastated to know that one of the show's stars won't be appearing when season 5 airs later this year.
After weeks of speculation by media outlets, it has been confirmed that Will Chase, who plays Luke Wheeler, didn't make the move to cable with the rest of the cast and won't be appearing in the upcoming season of Nashville.
Instead, Chase has signed as a series regular on a new ABC drama titled Time After Time.
EW broke the news Tuesday (August 16) and the story was retweeted by Chase himself.
While no official premiere date has been set for season 5, Hayden Panettiere, Connie Britton, Charles Esten, Lennon and Maisy Stella, Chris Carmack, and Jonathan Jackson will be reprising their roles.
What do you think about Will Chase's exit from Nashville? Will you be watching when the show returns?
